Temporary Archipelago no. 2 presents “Interluding”. This exhibition-performance resulted from Ana Laura, Claudia, and Kareth* examining each other’s previous works from Temporary Archipelago no. 1 for mutual themes, urgencies, and gestures. On the basis of this common ground, they search for a continuous construction of a choreographic space through the positioning of objects, texts, images, bodies, and performativities. In “Interluding” the artists make room for absence and conjecture, inviting the spectator to divine for herself the strands of authorship woven through a common endeavor. They articulate a detour and proliferate from there: in re-enacting found material, re-adjusting their bodies as the discipline may require, and in revering the theatre space, even in the exploitation of its very boundaries.

Temporary Archipelago is a collective platform consisting of dance artists Ana Laura Lozza, Kareth Schaffer, Claudia Tomasi, and Lee Meir. “We founded this platform to ensure that the communal and supportive relations we fostered during our studies at HZT Berlin would not suffer from an artistic landscape still largely obsessed with individual production. For Temporary Archipelago no. 1, we orchestrated an event at Tanzfabrik Berlin in June 2014 that presented the beginning for four new works with separate authors; in Temporary Archipelago no. 2 we have collaborated for the creation of ‚Interluding’.
This has been a production of Temporary Archipelago: if one artist is an island, four artists are an archipelago.
